It's my birthday! Let's have a virtual party!
Today is my 37th birthday.
Since birthdays are always a great time to think back on the previous year, I was thinking about how much we've grown as a community of enthusiastic learners.
Since my last birthday, on July 27, 2017, a lot has happened in the Speak English Community:
- More than 400 new students took action to improve their English by joining one of my programs
- We doubled the sessions of the Faster Fluency Conversation Club, with more than 50 students from all over the world meeting to get more confidence in speaking English, and learn about other students' cultures
- I had the great pleasure of meeting some of you in person, for breakfasts, drinks, and even an immersion trip to London
- Our community has grown from 15,000 to 235,000 members!
A year with the Speak English with Christina Community
More personally, I grew this year by joining 2 coaching programs, by meeting some of my own mentors in person, and blocking time in my schedule to dedicate to improving myself.
And that's what growth and development is all about. Not letting another year go past with nothing to show for it. Instead, making sure you take the time to invest in yourself.
Learn something new. Set a personal challenge for yourself. Go outside of your comfort zone and see you CAN do it.
For my birthday, could you share one thing with me...
How has Speak English with Christina helped you during the past year?
Maybe you got a new job after an interview in English, you had the confidence to start a conversation in English, or you understood some aspect of American culture better. Maybe you just enjoy the episodes each week!
Nothing would make me happier today than to see how you're using my episodes, courses, or coaching to improve yourself and become more confident in English.
Please share your story with me in the comments on this page.
I read all of your stories. Every week.
Today, it's extra special to me.
Let's celebrate together!
